"The long-term goal is for Canada to be the healthiest, fittest nation in the world. – Nancy Greene Raine Senator and Former OlympianThere are many organizations involved in the initiative, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Medical Association, Sport Matters Group, Physical & Health Educators of Canada, and the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association. Many participants mark the day with local events to celebrate and promote the use of local recreational, sports and fitness facilities. If you wish to get involved in inspiring Canadians to participate in a healthy lifestyle, the Fitness Industry Council of Canada (FIC) is collecting information from clubs who support the initiative.
